UFC 145 open media workout photos gallery for 'Jones vs Evans' in Atlanta

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones gets swarmed by media members at the Georgia State University Gym in Atlanta, Ga., today during the UFC 145 open media workouts.

MMA Fighting photo phenom, Esther Lin, was on the scene at the Georgia State University Gym in Atlanta, Ga., earlier today to shoot several of the notable fighters who will compete on the UFC 145: "Jones vs Evans" main card for the event's open media workouts.

Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening, Jon Jones and Rashad Evans, were on the scene to promote their highly-anticipated Light Heavyweight clash, as well as work up one of the last few real sweats prior to fight night (April 21, 2012) at the nearby Philips Arena.

Surging Welterweight contender Rory MacDonald and his opponent in the co-featured fight of the night, Che Mills, were also on hand, as well as Bantamweight brawlers Miguel Torres and Michael McDonald.

That's not all. In fact, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 170-pound champion, Georges St. Pierre, also made a cameo.
